Before and After: A Sad Backyard Becomes a Mid-Century Indoor-Outdoor Living Space

Updated: Oct 14, 2023

It was pretty exciting to have our own backyard makeover featured in Apartment Therapy. It's been our fixer for the past 28 years. Our backyard didn't give us much reason to go out back until we did a number on it. We added an open structure which kept us warm from the cool and foggy days and nights. The L shaped sectional makes for great conversations and it's so cozy by the fire. The interlocking pavers keep us from weeding and doing yard work (aside from cleaning up after our trees and our dog). Our small space is only 30'x30' but it's mighty. We can't thank Downing Construction enough for all their hard work on our yard. We have enjoyed this space for over five years now.
